For the exhaust fans on the Three Hundred Two, you will have one 120mm fan on the back panel and another 140mm fan on the top with a possible 120mm fan on the back of the motherboard as well.
For intake, you will have the option of using four intake areas. Two 120mm spots are ready for fans in the front and one 120mm spot is available on each of the sides.
Overall, this gaming budget chassis with an MSRP of $79.99 performed well in our testing. The plain outer exterior is not one that will stand out in a crowd, but it does create a sense of mystery about it. The addition of the two USB 3.0 connections is great to see as more and more peripherals are updating their technology to take advantage of this. The Three Hundred Two accepted our ASUS 480 GPU without a single problem and with ample room left over. This will make people happy to know that they fit almost every GPU on the market in this case, even dual 6990′s.
Installation went OK, but a little slower than normal because of the need to use our screwdriver on the motherboard and the PCI slots. Antec did make up for it by making the 5.25″ and 3.5″ installations very quick with no tools needed. The ability to sport two 2.5″ drives in this mid-tower was a pleasant surprise, with the best part being that they do not take up any of the 3.5″ slots, giving you the most storage space possible.
With the Antec Three Hundred Two placed into the budget-case market, it will be a strong contender with all the available features it packs with it. Even though it leaves four fan spots open out of the six total, it still ranks high up on our list of cases in this price range. Plus, since there is no window on the side, no one will be able to see the ugly unpainted interior either!
